The academic programme has been devised to provide a multidisciplinary and practical approach.
The Department of Energy and Environment is engaged in research in the broad area of clean technologies to achieve energy efficiency and minimize adverse environmental impacts. The areas of research include renewable energy, energy conservation, energy engineering and environment engineering including technologies for waste management and process efficiency improvement.
We require students interested in pursuing research leading to a PhD in the following broad areas:
1. Membrane bioreactors for wastewater reclamation
2. Fly ash based inorganic membranes
3. Value added products from biomass (activated carbon, pyrolysis oils, nanomaterials)
4. Membrane separation for upgrading the sugar manufacturing process
5. Catalysts from waste (eg red mud)
6. Power system analysis and optimization
7. Integration of renewable energy sources to electric grid
8. Green buildings
9. Heat and mass transfer during drying
10. Solar thermal
11. Solar photovoltaic
Categories of admission
(a) Full time with assistantship/without assistantship
(b) Full time with NREF/UGC/ CSIR/ DBT/ other research scheme scholarship
Admission to the PhD programmes will be made on the basis of a test and interview conducted by the department. Candidates may apply any time throughout the year. Admission is subject to vacancies available in the relevant specializations.
Note: Only those candidates shortlisted by the department, will be sent call letters for interviews.
